The New York Language Learning Center Writing Center is an essential and vital part of the school's community, where students are given the opportunity to learn in a seminar-style, innovative environment. It is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to helping students cope with the challenges they face as college-level writers. The multi-media resources include computer workstations, and the latest in audio/visual equipment.
The Center provides NYLLC students with a level of writing instruction, assistance, and encouragement that supports their academic development in class. Composition instructors bring their classes to the Center at least twice a semester to utilize its resources. In addition, students who need or want extra writing help can make an appointment for a consultation. In the afternoons, one-on-one and small group consultations are offered to students in composition classes. Published authors, professional writers and scholars lead workshops and seminar discussions, which provide alternative forums for students to receive support in completing their writing assignments.
In addition, The Writing Center houses its own collection of reference books and other writing materials catalogued through the library. A coordinator and two full-time faculty members oversee the day-to-day operations of the Writing Center, lead the seminar discussions and decide on the content of the seminars, workshops, events and resource collection. The seminars are alternative forums in which students can get the support needed to complete their writing assignments. In addition to being an intellectually stimulating and academically intensive space, The Writing Center also sponsors several cultural activities each semester. These activities include student poetry readings, a film series, and a writing contest. The Writing Center is also the home of Faculty Development Workshops for the college’s writing instructors. These workshops are designed to help them stay current in both the pedagogical and creative elements of writing.
